15 September Prep walk II Bermondsey

We met for another AltMFA’s Artlicks prep walk in Bermondsey and discussed the mode of ‘walking’ –  to engage and surprise participants, disrupt the art tourist’s hypnotic following mode by getting people to be more aware of their surroundings and to be more in the moment. Fritha suggested a pre-walk crit to present and discuss ideas, and constructively offer advice or brainstorm as to which site fits best, how pieces flow together – scheduled for next Monday, 22 September. Related, we thought about the ‘finding’ and ‘hiding’ and having another AltMFA session looking at overall concepts to do with walking practices, the weather, tours as practice. There is so much room for experimentation and sit specific work. (notes Sadie Edginton)
